Wamsutta Family Update 03/01/2019
Posted on 03/01/2019

Good morning, Wamsutta families.  I have a good amount of info for you this week.

Backpack Alert and Digital Notices:  On paper, we will be sending a notice for Girls’ FastPitch softball.  For digital notices, we have a flyer that mentions our BlueSteam event (more below), our girls middle school volleyball program, SMARTS Collaborative Summer programming, and notices from the Attleboro Rec Department.  I also have a letter regarding our school’s report card, that contains a link to the report card itself, as well as directions in a few different languages to help families navigate the information.

1.       BlueSteam:  As stated in the flyer, on Tuesday, March 12 from 6-8 PM at AHS, please join us for a hands-on community-sponsored evening, showcasing Attleboro’s dedication to project-based learning in our schools.  The event will focus on STEAM activities and initiatives (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) and highlights the many community partners we are indebted to for helping us with these relevant learning activities for students.

2.       PTO News:  In light of the BlueSteam event, our next PTO meeting will move to Wednesday, March 13 at 6:30 PM in our library.

3.       PTO News Part II:  Looking for a fun night out? Wamsutta PTO is hosting a fundraiser at The Craft Bar on Thursday, March 28th. Come make a beautiful customized wooden sign for your home and socialize with friends, all while raising money for the school!

Thank you as always for your time and attention.
